We have very much enjoyed creating this course and we hope that you now have a good understanding of what the bioeconomy is and how it can help us solve some of the problems we face.

Hopefully you will now see ‘wastes’ differently and the opportunities they offer. See how much you’ve learned by completing the week 3 quiz and, for those who have upgraded, a final test is available in the next step.

If you are interested in receiving regular bioeconomy updates, you can sign up for the BioVale newsletter and/or follow us on Twitter.
